Skyscraper Default path for media
In Retropie Setup there is a selectable option for Skyscraper (menu item 5 Generate Options) that the media files are stored in the respective ROM folder. This was disabled for me by default. If I scrape with Skyscraper via Retropie setup, all media files end up in respective folders in /configs/all/emulationstation/
When I launch Skyscraper from the console, tey are suddenly get placed in subfolders in the ROM folders. Why does skyscraper not use my default location for all the scraped media-files and the gamelist when used via console.
@10vorne that setting in the menu doesn't actually configure skyscraper, it just configures RP-Setup to use skyscraper. The actual handling of where the files end up is done by the command-line options passed by the script.
To configure Skyscraper for console usage, edit the settings into your
That means, if I enter all desired options in the config.ini, do they overwrite the settings when calling Skyscraper from RP-Setup?
I just hope that I won't cause a problem if I make a mistake. :)
The information initially commented out in the config.ini are the default values that Skyscraper works with...unless I change them here or in the commandline, correct?
If I'm reading this correctly, I would only need to change these two paths for Skyscraper to be invoked from the command line to be correct. Provided the other values are taken from the command line in the same way as when invoking skyscraper from RPSetup.
The aim should only be that the few games that I will scrape by hand are written to the right cache and the media files and game lists end up in the right place. I haven't changed anything from the default settings since installation.
@10vorne yeah that looks about right.
Re: overriding settings from RP-Setup. Remember that those settings are passed as command-line options; if the config.ini and command-line options are at odds, I believe the command-line option will take precedence. So when running through RP-Setup, the settings there will probably override those in
I only changed the two paths mentioned in the config.ini for the call via the command line, because they are different than when calling via RP-Setup. So I think it should fit.
